The man considered as Yazoo County’s Most Wanted was captured by deputies over the weekend.
Jody Tate, 28, remained behind bars Tuesday morning, along with Nicole Ingram, 38, who is accused of helping the fugitive elude authorities.
Tate is charged with attempted aggravated assault on an officer, felony evading, resisting arrest, burglary of a dwelling, possession of stolen property and telephone harassment.
Ingram is charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said the two were apprehended by deputies last Friday after information led them to their whereabouts.
“We were provided with information that led us to a home on Old Highway 49,” Gann said. “Deputies also received information that he was riding with Ingram and headed back to that home. Deputies hid and waited until their vehicle approached. He was surrounded, and both were taken into custody.”
Gann issued a public warning last week that anyone assisting Tate in his run from the law would also be heavily charged.
Tate, who is a habitual offender, led deputies on a high-speed chase before crashing his vehicle and running into the woods earlier this month. During the chase, he almost struck a deputy with his vehicle.
